Founded in 1925, Illinois Green Industry Association (IGIA) is one of the oldest agricultural organizations in Illinois. IGIA is a non-profit association that represents, educates and promotes nurseries, garden centers, landscape contractors, design firms, maintenance, irrigation, lawn care, golf course management, parks and recreation and other green industry businesses. The mission of the association is to provide its members services and opportunities in professional and business development in the green industry.
Active members are Illinois firms engaged, in some manner, in the sale, installation or care of horticultural plants for the landscape. IGIA’s membership consists of Allied Members, Associate Members, Student Members and Retired members. No matter what level you are classified under, you get to take advantage of the many benefits IGIA has to offer. Just last year alone, IGIA saw a 15% increase in membership.
Want to learn more? Mark your calendars for their 2nd annual educational event InVigorateU on January 18-19 at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois. This event is geared toward those looking not only for continuing education credits, but also for practical and productive learning in a “let’s get to work” setting. IGIA members receive discounted rates for this and all the events hosted by the association.
IGIA endorses Hortica Insurance & Employee Benefits and we are excited to be exhibiting at their InVigorateU this winter. For additional information, to register for an event or to become a member, please contact the IGIA office at 217-546-4733 or send an email to email@example.com.
